David Laws: Broken Laws

Barely a fortnight in office and our new government has had its first gay scandal - David Laws, the Lib Dem Treasury Secretary, has been caught by The Daily Telegraph breaking parliamentary rules by charging rooms rented from his partner to expenses.
His partner is his boyfriend - and Laws had been trying to keep their relationship secret.
Like former BP boss Lord Browne, who committed perjury by default through trying to keep his same-sex lover a secret, it seems that David Laws has been crushed by his own closet.
Poor sod.

  1. Apparently Laws could have claimed far more if he'd said his "landlord" was his partner...
